while that makes a lot of sense, i still prefer the mental image of the truck being lifted on to an office building.

My truck had two front receiving hitches when I bought it.

Im not sure, but could they have been used for a plow?

And I would feel awkward driving on a building in a truck.

Probly used to plow or was towed behind an RV.

You drive on buildings everytime you go into a parking garage

I first thought about the RV deal, but sounds better to say my truck was a snow plow.

Yeah I know about the parking garages, but im thinking like on top of a Best Buiy or something like that.

You can double that milage for all the backing up it did and don't forget idle time wear on the engine, I would sooner buy one with 50,000 miles on it and hasn't been used to plow. They get used hard for that type of work.

It has to be a parking garage, could you emagine one of the idiots at Walmart backing that thing off the roof and you know they would.

Instead of watch for falling prices it would be watch for falling Ford Rangers as you leave.

Uhh, no ****. But there is a lot of weight in the frame support and equipment for the blade. I kind of doubt that something that is built for the ranger has the ability to lift any significant amount of weight from the front of the truck, could be wrong. Looks pretty 'saggy' up front already to me. lol

Only if the blades lifts the front end up.

The front end is sagging, you put the blade down until it touches the ground...its still sagging lol
